NASCAR celebrities will be selling tickets for Bank of America 500

CONCORD ó NASCAR Sprint Cup drivers Kasey Kahne, Matt Kenseth, Kurt Busch and David Ragan, along with 1989 series champion Rusty Wallace, will be among those selling tickets when Lowe’s Motor Speedway hosts Bank of America 500 Celebrity Ticket Sales Days Monday through Wednesday.
Race fans will be able to purchase tickets for the Oct. 11 Bank of America 500 from NASCAR Sprint Cup drivers and other NASCAR personalities from 5 to 7 p.m. during each of the three days. The event will take place in the Lowe’s Motor Speedway ticket office, located on the second floor of Smith Tower.
“This is a great opportunity for race fans to interact with some of the sport’s biggest stars while purchasing tickets for the race that is sure to play a pivotal role in deciding the 2008 NASCAR Sprint Cup championship,” said Marcus Smith, president and general manager of Lowe’s Motor Speedway, who will also spend time greeting fans and selling tickets.
Fans will also have the opportunity to take pictures of family and friends alongside the sterling silver NASCAR Sprint Cup championship trophy. Free hot dogs and sodas will be available while supplies last.
The Bank of America 500 is round five of the 10-race Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup, and tickets start at just $29.
The celebrity ticket seller schedule:
Monday, 5 to 6 p.m., Rusty Wallace, 1989 NASCAR champion and ESPN broadcaster; 6 to 7 p.m., Kurt Busch, driver of the No. 2 Miller Lite Dodge.
Tuesday, 5 to 6 p.m., Kasey Kahne, driver of the No. 9 Budweiser Dodge; 6 to 7 p.m., Marcus Smith, president and general manager of Lowe’s Motor Speedway.
Wednesday, 5 to 6 p.m., Matt Kenseth, driver of the No. 17 DeWalt Ford; 6 to 7 p.m., David Ragan, driver of the No. 6 AAA Ford.
Among the ticket packages available for the Bank of America 500 on Saturday night, Oct. 11, is the Circle K Family Four-Pack for just $159.
The unique race-day experience includes four reserved Diamond Tower seats, four hot dogs and four 20-ounce Coca-Colas. The $159 price represents a savings of 30 percent if the same tickets and concession items were purchased separately.
In addition, each person purchasing the Family Four-Pack will receive a coupon for a free 12-pack of Coke Zero that may be redeemed at a participating Circle K store.
A limited number of Super Tickets are also still available. The Super Ticket allows race fans to attend the Bank of America 500 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series event on Saturday night, Oct. 11; the Dollar General 300 NASCAR Nationwide Series race on Friday night, Oct. 10; Bojangles’ Pole Night on Thursday night, Oct. 9; and the Vienna Sausage Southern Showdown World of Outlaws Late Model Series event at The Dirt Track at Lowe’s Motor Speedway on Wednesday night, Oct. 8.
Priced at $99, the Super ticket represents a whopping 33 percent savings off the $148 retail value if the same seats for the four races were purchased separately.
For those unable to attend one of the Bank of America 500 Celebrity Ticket Sales Days, tickets for all October races at Lowe’s Motor Speedway can be purchased by calling the speedway ticket office at 1-800-455-FANS or online at www.lowesmotorspeedway.com.
